Kid is shot, killed by neighborhood association captain

Another statement based solely on you own opinion and biases.

You don't know this guy....you don't know his motivations....you don't know whether he is lying or not....but you KNOW that he was hired by Zimmerman?

You take this to a whole new level.

When he directly says in the post " My initial thoughts" it is perfectly clear it was his opinion and he wasn't claiming to know anything.

In reply to Mav and the term coon ass. Growing up in Houston we referred to those from la coon asses. White, black, whatever. That being said, what does that have to do with a kid being hunted down?

Ask Zimmerman. He likes to yell "coons" before pulling out guns on children.

Sounded like it to me also. Didn't hear him say coon ass, it wouldn't have applied to Martin any how. He said fing coons.

According to one report I saw (will see if I can find the link) Martin's girlfriend told him to run and he said he was just going to walk fast first. Then later he did end up running.

tarheelpride provided the link, it's here: http://gma.yahoo.com/trayvon-martin-killing-911-tape-reveals-possible-racial-005007672--abc-news.html

I responded that her answers still appear to make it look as if Trayvon initiated the face-to-face confrontation, which I maintain was foolish. As I said before, I understand it coming from a teenager...full of ego, pride, etc., but still foolish. I don't blame him, I simply think his actions weren't wise. But he's a kid. Zimmerman doesn't have that excuse. As I said earlier, he's an adult and should have known better. I'm not going to pretend to know either of them and what was in their minds...though I suspect that both of them had adrenaline pumping and neither were thinking clearly. I'm also not going to assume that what appears to be the case is in fact the case. We really don't know what happened and likely won't know beyond Zimmerman's testimony, which obviously cannot be objective. It's possible that Zimmerman did initiate the physical confrontation...again, there's no way to know. All I'm going by is what the girl said...and she's the closest thing to an eye-witness there is.

Check the provided link. First PPG:The mother of slain Trayvon Martin recently filed a trademark to protect the rights to his name as an attempt to control- and collect funds from- the masses of merchandise being produced in support of their cause.

Seems to me, the more evidence comes out this was not a hate crime, the more the racist wants it to be so. Like the song says, "haters gotta hate". Yall have at it. If I could have a wish granted, it would be all the hate in the world would turn to love.
